The Roman Odeon of Kos in the Dodecanese region is a fantastic historical site that dates back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The Romans built this odeon and other notable constructions, including the Gymnasium and the Roman baths. All these structures are situated east and west of the Casa Romana, a part of the Ancient Town, and several excavation areas surround them.
Athens may divide opinions, but one thing’s for sure: there’s so much more to this city than meets the eye. When you venture beyond the regular tourist spots, you’ll unearth hidden treasures that guidebooks rarely mention. And one of our favorite finds is the time-honored district of Anafiotika.
Athens is so unique that we cannot imagine any other city where you can find an ancient roman tomb inside a Zara store. We expected to stumble upon ruins in Athens since it’s a quintessential historical city. But not in a clothing store.

Agios Nikolaos in Megalochori is a small chapel located on the island of Santorini. But this small church isn’t like any other church, and it was built in the rocky cliffs that overlook the crater and the Aegean sea below.
Its bell tower has the traditional triptych of bells that can be found all around the Greek islands, but this feels more unique due to its location.
